A Vivid Encounter Aug 22, 2007
"Encounters Travel and Money in the Byzantine World" is a beautiful and detailed production packing so much art and information into merely 72 pages. This book thematically shows how Byzantine coinage evolved over time and influenced the coinage and art of Byzantium's neighbours.
In addition to 56 large and detailed colour images of coins and artwork, the book contains two colour maps and several very well informed and written essays - addressing several topics related to Byzantium and the Latin West, Northern Europe and Eastern Europe. As well there are fascinating essays about Byzantium and the Islamic world, as well as Byzantium and Georgia and Armenia. This remarkable book concludes with essays on Byzantine trade and traveling Byzantine emperors.
Anyone interested in Byzantine coinage, art or civilization or Byzantine influence on nighbouring civilizations would thoroughly enjoy this small book.
